  7. 7. Freight and Goods The Challenge…80% of all goods IN andOUT of Florida aremoved by truck. (Wehave limited highwaycapacity, (this trend isNOT SUSTAINABLE).
  8. 8. Other Challenges…• Our Ports have limited land side capacity and depth.• Other US Port competition for the Panamax freighters• Our Coastal Rail Lines have limited capacity to handle the increased freight AND passenger service that is expected to increase in the future. … A More Robust, Interconnected,Intermodal Transportation System is Needed
